Edward W. Seilheimer Grave Marker

 

          This grave marker, which is at Hackensack Cemetery, located at 289 Hackensack Avenue, Hackensack, New Jersey, reveals that Edward W. Seilheimer served in the U.S. Navy during World War I and died on May 20, 1980 at the age of almost 80. 

Edward W. Seilheimer was not on the October 5, 1918 Honor Roll list, which was in the Evening Record, but this confirms his connection to Hackensack by being buried within its borders since passing and forevermore.

Note that there is a Phillip Seilheimer who was on the World War I list, but I have no way of knowing there connection for certain with each other if any at the present time.

The Seilheimer name was well known in Hackensack after World War II because they made soda called “Seilheimer” on Hudson Street in Hackensack and it was sold throughout the area.
